Dr. Dan Hatch, PT, DPT, a physiotherapist in Newport, Rhode Island, sees first-hand the ravages of overtraining and not completing enough recovery work. He believes that there are many fads out there that make promises that are ultimately detrimental to our health.
“There’s no quick fix to living a healthy and happy life,” he says. “And preventing injury is key.”
